We use our electric Mr. Coffee without the Electric. I borrowed DW's small Tupperware bowl and drilled 2 - 1/16" holes in the bottom of it.
Then follow this process:

The dry-camping method:
1 - Fill coffee filter with coffee grounds
2 - Place in Mr. Coffee basket
3 - Place the Tupperware bowl into the basket on top of the coffee grounds
4 - Pour water boiled on the stove into the basket
5 - Enjoy the cup

Makes 2 cups of fresh coffee. We only make 2 cups at a time. Hate reheated coffee, has to be fresh

Works for us....

We use a kettle on the stove, freshly ground coffee, and a french press....at home and (starting tomorrow! First trip in our new Greyhawk!) on the road.

Bodum makes some great double-walled travel mugs that have a built in french press, perfect for RV'ing!

Keurig, generator for power. If "roughing it" I will boil water on the stove and use Starbucks Via.

I too cannot not start my day without coffee and have several ways of making it with no hook-ups...
1. Camp stove percolator - the trick is to start the perking with good flame and then turn it down to slow it down. How long you perk is how strong you want your coffee. This is the slowest. Coleman does make a drip coffee maker for the camp stove, but its even slower than the percolator.
2. Drip coffee - I have the filter holder from an expired electric drip that I pour hot water thru to my 32oz coffee mug below. This is by far the easiest when its just my wife and I are boondocking. This is the fastest
3. The AC powered coffee maker with help from the generator.

I use the campstove percolator myself. I will often set it up the night before and then I'll get up in the morning, 5:30 or so, and set my burner at about a 2-2.25. Then I crawl back into bed. It takes about 15 minutes to reach heat high enough to start percolating, but I don't have to baby sit it I just let it go another 15 or so and then get out of bed and turn off the burner. I then let it sit another 5-10 minutes to finishing dripping out while I get dressed, remove the grounds basket and pour my coffee.
